Three deep ambient meditations on Claude Debussy's 'water music'.
This album is the second co-operation from Doc and Lena Selyanina. Where their first album Distant Transmissions - Ambient Reflections on Bach (MT002) was focusing around the idea of space - 'cosmic Bach' if you wish - this second album is characteristically a 'water album'. The theme of water is present at all levels: in the themes of the songs, in their tonal treatments and also in the sound material. The basic setting is that of deep, meditative ambient - the dark majesty of 'deep waters' - out of which arise the warmer, swifter and lighter layers of music conveying the mystery, intimacy and sensuality associated with the element of water.
The original works of Debussy that inspired this album are: Danseuses de Delphes (Dancers in Mist), Voiles (Behind the Veils) and L'isle joyeuse (An Island of Joy).
